He also called for tougher international sanctions on Iran to bring pressure on Tehran to give up its nuclear weapon ambitions and he said Iran must be made to realize that if it continues on its present path, it will become a "pariah state".</p><p>While Tehran must also be offered the carrot of possible talks with the United States if it complies with the demands of the international community, Cameron warned that the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran was "one of the most urgent" questions facing the world today.</p><p>Cameron's threat to Iran was issued after officials of the U.S. occupation coalition in Iraq claimed on May 21, that Iran is covertly working with rebel forces in Iraq, in preparation for a major Summer offensive to drive U.S. and British forces out of the country. The Coalition officials claimed that the Revolutionary Guard in Tehran has forged ties with al-Qaeda and Sunni Arab militias in Iraq, to wage war "by proxy" against the U.S.</p></div></body>
